There's really nothing terribly interesting about me other than the fact that I like to write about the ordinary days in a grace-filled, often humorous way that makes them seem anything but ordinary as I look back on the string of days behind me.
But that might have something to do with the passel of children I'm raising.
I blog about parenting (often special needs parenting), faith, and everything and nothing in-between.
This blog started as a way to sort through not only becoming a first time mom at 25, but becoming a first time mom to a baby with Down syndrome. (spoiler alert: I am no longer 25...well, except when I'm "rounding down" from somewhere in the early 30s-cough-)
I am a music teacher, although now I only run a small violin studio out of my home. Public school teaching days are behind me!
Sometimes I pretend to be a writer (see: My Book tab). Sometimes I lazily let the words fall where they want to just for the sake of recording the experience.
I struggle between raising my Special Needs Mom flag high and contentedly living the life of just a super normal (slightly boring) mom.
Half the time I am convinced I am completely screwing my kids up. The other half I contentedly rest on who they were meant to be in spite of my mistakes as a mom.
I prefer to laugh rather than cry.
And I drink way too much coffee.
You can read the beginning of our Down syndrome story in the ebook Dreams Change. It's not a polished gem. It's real. It's honest. You know, all the not-so-pretty stuff that is sometimes just as important as the gleaming finished product. If you're going through a new Down syndrome diagnosis, it just might help you to know that you're not alone.
Thanks for stopping in to EANFE!
Oh yes, and please leave me comments. I heart comments. There's nothing worse than talking to a room full of people with deadpan expressions and absolutley no response. It makes me feel like I'm teaching public high school once again.
